black and white rain scene

she
sits up as if to leave,
those eyes

strong
enduring

but the couch is about to become empty
the scotch is going to be
bitter
and the door is going close behind
that beautiful
skirt

it
leaves
me

weak
lost

wondering what i said
or did
in the moment
or in
the past

the radio is going to be lonely tonight
my bed will be empty
i will stretch out on the couch
simply to smell her perfume
left behind in this room

and i’ll stare out that window

knowing on the street
she is waving down a taxi
maybe looking up once more at my window

but

not likely
